Hi Peter,
When did you try that ?  My info is the PIL released within the last few
month version 1.1.4 which does the job.
this is from http://effbot.org/zone/pil-changes-114.htm:

(1.1.4a2 released)

+ Improved support for 16-bit unsigned integer images (mode "I;16").
  This includes TIFF reader support, and support for "getextrema"
  and "point" (from Klamer Shutte).

(Ooops: PIL 1.1.4 final was released on May 10, 2003.   (time flies ...)
